One of Africa’s largest infrastructure companies, BUA Group, has acquired majority shareholding in P.W. Nigeria Limited.

P.W Nigeria is one of Nigeria’s largest construction, engineering and mining companies.

In a statement, BUA noted that this was necessary to further deepen its investments in the infrastructure business in sub-Saharan Africa.

“This acquisition marks the beginning of the next phase of our medium term strategy for our infrastructure business following the completion of the consolidation of our cement arm, BUA Cement, in January 2020.

“BUA’s acquisition of majority holdings in PW Nigeria Limited provides a prime opportunity to increase our investments in the entire value chain of the Cement, Mining and Construction industry where we already have BUA Cement Plc, the second largest cement company in Nigeria, as well as investments in other areas including mining, quarrying, construction, power, and logistics amongst others.

“We believe P.W. Nigeria Ltd with its solid experience in building dams, roads, airports, water projects and other infrastructure projects in Nigeria provided a strong value proposition too difficult to ignore,” Abdul Samad Rabiu, Executive Chairman of BUA Group, said.

Rabiu added that as Nigeria and most of West Africa looks to improve infrastructural development in coming years, it became imperative for BUA to position itself strategically to support critical investments and government effort and unlock latent opportunities in the infrastructure development space.

The acquisition of P.W. Nigeria extends BUA’s investments, leadership and capacity in the infrastructure space and projects are expected to benefit from a tight integration of BUA’s cement business and PW Nigeria’s construction business.
